About Speech Therapy
Speech-language therapy addresses difficulties with understanding and expressing speech and language. Its goal is to help improve verbal, non-verbal and social communication skills in order for the child to communicate in more useful and functional ways. In addition to communication, speech therapy also address difficulties in areas of feeding (i.e. chewing and swallowing) and literacy (i.e. reading and comprehension).
